Beyond Diversity: An LGBT Best Practice Guide for Employers
In celebration of Pride month, we share this resource guide developped by Pride at Work Canada in relations to creating an open and safe workplace for the LGBTQIA+ community.
"Workplace diversity is the new normal. Business leaders everywhere recognize diversity in all its forms as a competitive advantage. Diverse perspectives drive creativity, innovation and foster a feeling among employees that their opinion matters, which encourages them to give their best effort and stick around. According to Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work®, “when employees look up, look to the left and to the right, they internalize what they see, it gives them hope that they will be seriously listened to when approaching leaders with new product ideas, growth opportunities, or simply to connect. This hope fuels increased commitment which is needed for innovation and the attraction and retention of A-team players of all types.”"
